Description

A specialist high-performance mountaineering and expedition down sleeping bag. Cut roomy enough for comfort and for stashing important kit overnight with you, these bags are well suited to long periods in remote camps.

  • The trapezoid baffles provide a lightweight method of achieving excellent down control, aided by vertically oriented chest baffles that prevent any chance of down migration.
  • The Drishell outer is highly water repellent and helps to keep the down dry and lofting.
  • A large 3D shaped collar, side V channels to insulate the side seams, double draft tube behind the zip, and closely boxed foot section form part of a formidable list of technical specifications.

Technical

Water-resistant Drishell outer fabric (weight: 54 gsm)

Ripstop nylon with an ultralight coating: achieves total windblock, along with high breathability and superior water resistance. Superbly efficient for a very light overall fabric weight.

Lightweight M1 fabric (weight: 39 gsm)

Lightweight silky microfibre. This close-weave 20 denier fabric is fully downproof, but also light and flexible enough to allow the down full loft. A reliable performer that has been the basis for much of our lightweight gear for some time.

800 Fillpower Down

Superb European goose down, selected for loft and liveliness.

More on our down insulation.

Construction

PHD's trapezoid baffle system is used throughout. This is the best of the technical baffle systems, combining excellent down control with low baffle weight. In cross section the baffle system looks like this:

The design has a close-fitting down-filled mummy hood, and side V-channels which ensure all areas of the body are insulated. The baffles over the chest are vertically aligned, which stops any horizontal shifting of the down caused by arm movement during the night.
